Insomniac Games has revealed that a fourth game in the Resistance franchise could be developed by another studio.
The developer currently has no plans for the franchise beyond the soon to be released Resistance 3.
Creative Director Marcus Smith told Gaming Union;
“We’ve got three different games with very different focuses. We’re kind of going in a lot of different directions. Ted Price, Alex and Brian Hastings, the owners, have been doing this for a long time – something like 15 years of doing Sony exclusive games – and they’re just interested in doing other things… I think we’re thriving and branching out in a lot of different directions.”
“We’ve done Resistance 3 and we’re really into it and proud of it, but we’re not currently slated to do a Resistance 4, we’ve got a lot of different places for the universe to go, so I could certainly see the series going to another developer. I’m sure Sony would want to find a high calibre developer to do a good offering. I don’t think they’d hand the franchise over to somebody who is going to screw it up.”
Would you be happy to see the franchise go to another developer or would you rather see it end if no longer in the hands of Insomniac?
